Did you know current research in Neuroscience points to music’s ability to shift your mood, your perception and as a result, reality as you experience it.
Picture this: you’re having a rough day, it’s raining, traffic is awful, and things have not gone the way you planned. Then out of nowhere you hear a song that makes you take a breath. A feeling moves up the middle of your body and you can’t help but smile as you’re filled with the memory and significance of what the song means to you. In moments like these, music helps you redefine your reality.
According to research at University of Groningen in the Netherlands, music has a significant impact on an individual’s perception and reality as they experience it. While listening to happy music and being asked to identify either smiley or sad emoticons; participants routinely identified a neutral face with the same happy or sad feeling as the music they were listening to.
Perceiving things that aren’t actually there is part of a normal brain process. According to researchers, “our brain continuously compares the information that comes in through your eyes with what it expects on the basis of what you know about the world. The final result of this comparison process is what we eventually experience as reality”.
I’m sure you’ve heard our tag line at Defy Aging Solutions: Recreate Yourself at Any Age! Research results like this fuel the atmosphere of community and ingenuity it takes to RECREATE! This is one reason why our members make the playlist.
We have an ongoing request list so that you hear and feel the music in a way that supports not only the work you do in the studio, but most importantly the way you feel when you leave and step out into reality.
As we head towards the middle of January, just past New Years Resolutions and just before acting on those plans; we encourage you to pick the mindset you want to have and choose a theme song this week. Let it help you recreate your reality in a way that is positive for you, motivating and supportive of who you are now and who you want to become!
